    Royal Enfield Thunderbird has good features like it has new Halogen lamp as before there was conventional lamp and because of its replacement the life span has increased. It also has good foldable foot rest and the chain sprocket which was in left side has moved to the right hand side and even the rear brake cable has been moved to the right side.

    I had test rode on TB, Electra and Classic When I Rode Classic in very bad street road Near the Showroom, Really am telling you, I couldn't find bad road feel on it. But when I rode Thunderbird and Electra it make me felt so much about Road conditions, looks it will surely give Back pain when we ride it in Bad road conditions.

    It is a revolution in the royal Enfield world. The bike is really awesome. It has changed the thinking dimension of many bikers. The bike is meant for a long terrain and the comfort is exceptionally well. Where, one thing i have observed is that the mileage, comfort, style and control.

    Hi, friends it’s true that this engine is awesome with power, pickup, and mileage about 49 on highway and 43 in city. I bought this bike in May 2011 and I am very happy with its performance.

    I own this bike from past 8 months and believe me its and outstanding bike. It gives good mileage of around 45 Kmpl in city and almost 50 Kmpl on highways but while servicing the mechanic did some engine tuning but after that day I am getting mileage of 40 Kmpl in city and 45 on Highway so please guys don’t let the mechanic touch the carburetor.

    Both the bikes are great but if you need the bike soon then go for Royal Enfield Thunderbird and if you can wait for some time then go for Royal Enfield Classic 350 as the demand of this bike is very much and because of which the waiting period of Royal Enfield Classic 350 is long.
